“Your first mission is to come back safe.” Cohen Media Group has revealed an official US trailer for another Ukraine war documentary film titled Glory to the Heroes, which will be showing in very limited theaters this December. Directed by Bernard-Henri Lévy, and co-directed by Marc Roussel, this film is a follow-up “sequel” doc to their other film called Slava Ukraini, which opened in theaters in May 2023 earlier this year. That one already opened in the summer, and BHL decided to return to Ukraine in June to continue filming more. After Russia destroyed the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine, he had to go back inside of Ukraine. Another haunting look at what is happening there. Lévy has brought to the world a film that, now more than ever, is a painful reminder that this war is our war and it’s time for the West to urgently give Ukraine everything it needs to win. Join filmmaker Bernard-Henri Lévy for screenings and post-film Q&As at the United Nations Headquarters in New York (December 6) in Washington, D.C. at Landmark’s E Street Cinema (December 9), & Los Angeles at Landmark Theatres Sunset (December 10). View the footage below.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Bernard-Henri Lévy’s doc Glory to the Heroes, from YouTube:
In June 2023, Russia destroys the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine and commits an unprecedented ecocide. In response, French philosopher and filmmaker Bernard-Henri Lévy (aka BHL – follow him on IG @bernardhenrilevy) returns to Ukraine to capture Ukraine’s deep humanity despite the dire conditions, and a civilian resilience and resistance unlike any other. In the documentary Glory to the Heroes, Lévy, along with his co-director Marc Roussel, spends the summer in eastern Ukraine recording for the world a passionate ode to Ukraine’s courage on the battlefield while depicting the overwhelming sorrow sowed by Russia’s continuous attacks on civilians. On the ground during the Ukrainian counteroffensive, Lévy and Roussel embed with elite forces on the frontline. With unprecedented access, they capture the horrors of war, the hopefulness of all of the Ukrainian citizens and their optimism in the face of senseless destruction.
Glory to the Heroes is once again directed by acclaimed French doc filmmaker Bernard-Henri Lévy (aka “BHL”), director of the doc films Bosna!, Day and Night, The Oath of Tobruk, Peshmerga, The Battle of Mosul (TV), and The Will to See previously. Co-directed by Marc Roussel (of The Oath of Tobruk, The Will to See). Produced by François Margolin. Cohen Media Group will debut the Glory to the Heroes doc in select US theaters starting December 8th, 2023. For more info, visit their official site. Anyone want to watch?
